Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Treharris

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Treharris. I would like to know the reason why all Treharris lawyers aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?

A decade ago most lenders exhibited an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The financial regulator in 2010 conducted a thematic review into fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the solicitors on your panel. Consequently, banks have since soughtmore information from law firms about their operations and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Many law practices have found themselves removed from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to satisfy the minimum volume of transactions the lenders insisted on.

We are buying a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Treharris who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for HSBC . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Treharris.

we are a couple who decided to purchase a 2 bedroom apartment in Treharris with a residential mortgage from Nationwide Building Society.We have a Treharris conveyancing lawyer but Nationwide Building Society advised that she’s not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Nationwide Building Society panel solicitor or keep our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Nationwide Building Society use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Nationwide Building Society conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Nationwide Building Society

Should our solicitor be raising enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Treharris.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Treharris. There are those who purchase a house in Treharris, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or by their lawyers which should figure out the risks in Treharris. The standard information sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard question of the seller to find out if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the seller, then a buyer may bring a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect response. The buyer’s conveyancers should also order an environmental search. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be carried out.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Treharris?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Treharris. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

We're FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the selling agent informed us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use their preferred solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Treharris

It is unlikely the owners are behind this. Should the vendor want ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Treharris conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will provide the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by corporate headquarters.
